Health & Safety

Committed to delivering a clean and safe environment through health and safety protocols

One of our highest priorities is the health, safety, and security of our guests, team members, and business partners. COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way we live, and we are adjusting our daily operations to fit within the new normal. In response to this, we and a team of experts have reviewed our existing health and safety processes and developed a new safety protocol. This in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocol was created in partnership with SGS and is designed to ensure your safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out.

What are the new protocols?

A new 20-step protocol for hotels and 10-step protocol for meeting and event spaces is currently being introduced to our hotels. New cleaning and disinfection procedures, increased attention to safety in communal spaces, protective equipment, and updated training for team members are included in the new protocols. All our worldwide locations are being briefed on these protocols and strongly encouraged to implement them. These protocols describe specific processes and measures that are designed to make you feel confident when you visit us. To learn more, watch the video with more details or read the outlined steps below:
